It should be noted that the actor wanted to marry away from the city (that meant Media too)! Also in his recent interview to TeleBuzz he was quoted as saying, "Three to four days prior to my wedding, the media had been trying to contact me either through Whatsapp or text messages to cover my wedding. Since it was a special and personal event, I refused and clarified that I did not want any media coverage."
The actor further says, "During the day of my wedding, four representatives, two from leading news channels along with their cameramen, came to shoot my wedding. Without taking my permission, they started shooting the wedding. They did not feel the necessity to even congratulate me. I felt like someone is spying on me."
Avinash said that when he spotted two people with cameras, he notified his relatives, who asked them to leave. But they denied and said it was their duty. They were also asked by his relatives and friends to delete the footage that they recorded.
Avinash was upset with media as things were going wrong in resort premises and the media didn't even bother to take his or resort manager's permission. It was then he barged in to sort out things.
The actor was further quoted as saying by TellyBuzz, "If they (media) would have requested me, I would have allowed them to shoot at least for some time maintaining the privacy. I have no problem with the media until they do something cheap or shabby. I believe this was all a TRP game and pretty much planned."
